This bundle is filled with activities to do during your money unit. Please, download the preview page to see more pictures of some of the items this bundle includes.
*Printable Coins (18 pages)
I love variety. That is why I created several pages of different sized coins (extra large, large, medium, and small) in both color and b&w.
Extra Large Coins: These coins are great for whole group activities because they are large enough for the entire class to see. I would laminate these coins and put a magnet on the back so that they can stick to the board.
Large Coins: When working in groups, it can be difficult to see if everyone has the correct amount. I made these coins to make it easier on us, the teachers.
Medium Coins: These coins are more accurate to real life coins. Students can keep a set of these coins in their desk to use during independent work. It is also a great sheet to send home with your students so that they can practice counting money at home.
Small Coins: These coins will work perfectly with the activities I have created in this packet. I love this size because as teachers we know how valuable paper can be and this page contains four sets of coins in one.
*Coin Posters (4 pages)
The next four pages contain a poster for a quarter, dime, nickel, and penny. Each poster shows the front of the coin, the back of the coin, how much the coin is worth using the cent and dollar symbol, and which president is on the coin.
*Word Wall (3 pages)
There are 2 sheets of money related words that can be added to your word wall during your money unit. I also included a blank sheet that you can use for any additional words.
*Word Value (48 pages)
K-1 High Frequency Words
- 20 lists with 10 words in each
- 20 Word Value sheets
2nd Grade High Frequency Words
-22 lists with 10 words in each
-22 Word Value sheets
1 blank Word Value sheet
-You can write in your own words with this sheet. Make it an across the curriculum activity by writing in some of your science, social studies, or ELA words. The high frequency words would be great to use as weekly spelling words and you can use the corresponding activity sheets as homework.
*Foldable Tabs (5 pages)
I created three levels of foldable tabs so that you can differentiate this activity. I also included a blank four-tab foldable and a blank three-tab foldable. This way if the money amounts given are not what you are looking for, you can create your own. Students can either draw their own coins under each flap or use the printable coins and paste them under each flap.
*Four Door Foldable (2 pages)
Students will use the four-door foldable to match coin pictures to their name and how much they are worth.
*Task Cards (18 pages)
There are 12 task cards that students can do as center activities. Each task card has a recording sheet to go along with it. You will need a bag, cup, or basket to put some coins in for tasks 2, 7, & 9.
Task 1- Coin Rubbings (will need real coins)
Task 2– Coupon Collections (coupons provided)
Task 3– Pennies and Dimes (colored and b&w dice provided)
Task 4– Make 50 Cents
Task 5– Nickels and Quarters (colored and b&w dice provided)

Task 10– Catalog Scavenger Hunt (will need a catalog or sales paper)
Task 11– Chore List
Task 12– Race to $1.00 (colored and b&w dice provided)
*Money Word Problems (3 pages)
I created these word problems to use as a final assessment for my students. The first sheet is more basic because it only requires students to figure out the total amount of money. Students can draw pictures of the coins to help them, or they can use the printable coins in this bundle as a hands on manipulative to solve the problems. The last two sheets are more challenging because they include multiple steps. These pages will be great for those students who are more advanced.
*Money in My Pocket (4 pages)
Use this activity to reinforce previous learned money skills. There are 4 levels of Money in My Pocket. The first page focuses on counting money from 50 cents and below, the second page from 99 cents and below, the third page from $1.00 to $1.50, and the fourth page from $1.51 to $2.00.
*How Much is Left? (4 pages)
I created this activity because I know how much young students love to carry a purse or wallet to school with them. In this activity, students have to figure out how much change they will receive after using a dollar to buy something. You can use the cut out coins (smaller version with 4 sheets on 1 page) or have the students draw the amount inside the purse or wallet.
*How Much Money Is In Your Purse? (4 pages)
Students count how much money is in each of the purses. They write the amount of each purse in the box beside it. There are 3 different versions that range in difficulty with 4 problems on each page. I also included 1 page that varies in difficulty with 8 problems.
*How Much Money Is In Your Wallet? (4 pages)
Students count how much money is in each of the purses. They write the amount of each purse in the box beside it. There are 3 different versions that range in difficulty. I also included 1 page that varies in difficulty with 8 problems.
*Comparing Amounts (2 pages)
Students will use these two pages to compare coin amounts. They will write the amount of each group of coins and then compare the groups using greater than, less than, or an equal to sign.
*Money Bingo (35 pages)
1 sheet of 45 calling cards
10 bingo chip cards
24 randomized money bingo cards
